Hi, we have a dedicated server and we are starting to use Acymailing. We did a first campaign to test and it did not go great, so we have some doubts I hope someone can help with...
We have around 65.000 subscribers and we would like to be able to send a campaign to all of them in max a couple of days. First test we did, it took more than 5 days so now I am checking the settings and I see our max_execution_time is set to 30 by default but we can change it to whatever we want. So I wonder what would be the best settings for php, right now we have this https://prnt.sc/vlcpvl
Also what would be the best setting in acymailing to achieve this?
What we noticed in our first test was that the open rate is really low compared to what we get from mailings done from mailchimp, is there any explanation for this?
Is there any third party service you can recommend we can connect acymailing to so we can increase sending rate, to for example sending the 65000 mails in one day? We talked to our server support and we have been told that there is no real limit in sending out emails but we should not pass 1000 per hour so we do not get blacklisted.
Any suggestions or advice would be highly appreciated. Thanks
